THE Atherton Tablelands Hockey fields were the place to be last Saturday as the Douglas Hockey Association travelled up to compete against local teams in a friendly interclub competition.
All ages were represented from under 13s through to open mens and ladies along with the recently established walking hockey teams.
ATHA Secretary Anne Robets said they enjoyed themselves so much they wanted to have a round robin competition as just one game wasn’t enough.
“Greg Mills has been the driving force behind the establishment of a new hockey club at Douglas and introduced the walking hockey concept to Atherton,” she said.
Many Douglas players stayed overnight to enjoy local hospitality, sights and entertainment.
“The event was enjoyed by all and will be increased to four play offs next season.
“Atherton Tablelands Hockey association strives to keep a family focused fun social and sport activity for all ages and are welcoming to any interested new players of any age irrespective of skill ability.”
Walking Hockey is open to all ages and is a modified version of the game, all levels of skill and fitness can play, current players are aged from 19 to 78 years.
Games are played at 5pm on Saturdays at Loder park, Atherton.
Contact Atherton Hockey or just turn up on the day.
Fees are competitive and weekly payment is available.
